12:07 am
weekend. [cheers and applause ] i had a very good weekend. on is the night i dined with the first lady of the united states. today a drove to work and watched a man dressed as spiderman, urinate into a slurpee cup. [ laughter ] i hosted the white house correspondent association dinner on saturday night. and the entertainment was me and president obama. he was very funny, made jokes about the fact that he ate a dog. some people thought it was undignified for the president to joke about it. personally, i feel like once you eat a dog, dignity is pretty much out the window. get what you can out of it. it was kind of like a loweroast. i made fun of the enormous governor of new jersey, chris kristy. kim kardashian laughed at what i said about her.
12:08 am
one person who didn't laugh was barbara walters. i did a joke about her that i thought was innocuous, but apparently she was unamused. >> if you looked at me,ivities laughing too, but i did not like jimmy kimmel, who is very funny. but i did not like what he said about me. take a look. >> 16 years is a long time. 16 years ago there was no facebook, google and a tweet was something barbara walters gave her dog. [ laughter ] >> how did you feel? >> you have to admit, they were talking about you. so it's actually a compliment to make fun of people. >> they made fun of us on saturday night live. let me test her, say the word
12:09 am
treat three times. >> treat, treat, treat. >> good, barbara. >> jimmy: perfect. was that really offensive? i didn't mean to upset you barbara. if it offended you, i'm very sorwee. everyone loves a good insult as long as it isn't them being insulted. i made a joke about marshall bachman with his wife. he runs clinics to turn gay people straight. west ham united he in the hair club for men cling, not only the president, i'm also a client. [ laughter ] anyway, i did a joke about him that was apparently worthy of serious analysis. >> he burned more bridges than madison county.
12:10 am
he has more pink slips than marcus bachman. too soon? if you're not familiar, he plays cameron on the show modern family. stand up. where are you, marcus? oh, there he is. [ laughter ] >> i have a question. >> that was wrong. >> thank you, don. at least someone has a sense of humor. >> jimmy: making jokes about the secret service while they were ten feet away from me with machine guns in their hands. president obama made jokes about them and he didn't get much of a reaction either. >> just to set the record straight, i do enjoy attending these dinners. i have more material prepared,
12:11 am
but i have to get the secret service home in time for their curfew. >> probably laughing on the inside. >> jimmy: strange development in the secret service prostitution saga. they issued new rules of conduct on friday and on some trips, they will send shap rons to make sure the rules are enforced. these are the chap rons. they're going to make sure there's no funny business. am i nuts, or is this weird? we have to give the secret service chaperones to make sure they don't get drunk and have sex? we should make them travel with their moms. they will be highly trained themselves and will be ready to throw their bodies on any agent who is about to throw his body on a prostitute.
12:12 am
tonight they managed to find the only thing to make ballroom dancing more exciting and that's classical music. did you know beethoven specifically wrote his simpony in the hopes irkel would quick step to it? maria mean you knows on got their perfect score of the season. they finished in first with 57 out of skikt. low score went to melissa gilbert with 47 points. she might be here with us tomorrow night until her little house on the prayers are answered. this is a pair we need to get on "dancing with the stars." a video of a woman shopping at target with her grandson, and she came up with a fun new way to get around the store, dragging the kid behind the rascal. i wonder if she even knows he's there. [ laughter ] they just went down the aisle.
12:13 am
target should pay them for buffing the floors for them, especially what they're doing. arnold schwarzenegger is back in the news. he's shooting movies again, but he's also keeping himself in the world of politics. he was on bbc news talking about the fact that republicans and democrats can't agree on an energy plan. he's not lost his step. >> there's no action in washington. democrats and republicans are not working together to -- they're stuck in their idealology corner. >> jimmy: english language wins again. that happens when he breaks his two syllable rule. now on to the future governor of california, metta world peace. the lakers are in the playoffs
12:14 am
now, up 1-0 on the denver nuggets. they didn't allow the player formerally known as ron artest to play. he's still answering questions about his elbow to the head of james harden. he's serving a seven-game suspension. here he is describing it in his own words. >> it was a brutal elbow. i seen it. i'm like, oh. it seemed like anger, but it was a lot of passion involved. i didn't lose it. it was bad timing for me. physically, it was bad timing for mr. harden. >> jimmy: bad timing all around. [ laughter ] this is from dr. oz. he has a thing on the show where he asks audience members to reveal their most personal and sometimes embarrassing secrets. on friday he had a show called tmi, too much information, your shocking and intimate questions
12:15 am
answered. the stars of that show, bernie and beth. >> welcome to the show. >> what's your tmi question? >> my question is, we were having sex, and we broke his penis. >> how do you know you broke his penis? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: fortunately his penis was still under warranty. did you know that could happen, guillermo? >> guillermo: no. >> jimmy: what's that noise? guillermo, a lot of times he's up early taking care of his five-month-old son, but on sunday he tweeted watching real madrid game, having cookies and coffee. great gameo far and great cookies. then at 3:57, he tweeted, i wish they delivered pizza 24 hours a day. the cookies weren't filling you
12:16 am
up? >> guillermo: no. >> jimmy: he tweets more about food before 9:00 a.m. than most people do during the whole day. at 4:10, guillermo tweeted time for the second half and more cookies. holler, madrid. what's that mean? >> guillermo: that's what they say, holler, madrid. >> jimmy: i think your stomach needs a chaperone. then he tweets, happy royal wedding anniversary, wow, time goes fast. is that wow? w wao? two minutes later he tweets poach eata mexicana, can you cook breakfast for me? did they just legalize marijuana in your house? what's happening? >> guillermo: i was half asleep.
12:17 am
>> jimmy: one hour, tweeted about soccer, pizza, cookies and the royal wedding. you're like the mexican "view." we have quite a security team at our show, an interesting bunch. sometimes it's fun to talk to them. in light of the recent secret service scandal, they're sworn to protect the president even if it costs them their life. so today we asked my security team if they would, indeed, take a bullet for me. >> would you take a bullet for jimmy? >> no. >> not at all? >> not for $10 an hour i wouldn't. >> would you take a bullet for jimmy? >> anything delivered to him, i give it to him. >> would you take a bullet for jimmy? >> yes. no, are you crazy? he knows that, though, we had that conversation. >> i work for him. i do security for him. i would. >> would you take a bullet for
12:18 am
jimmy? >> no. >> jimmy: guillermo, you wouldn't take a bullet for me? >> guillermo: no. >> jimmy: guess i have to have you replaced then. let's bring in emily, everyone. meet my new security guard and take the old one out of here. emily, congratulations. [cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: and thank you, emily. i'm not sure if you're loyal or insane, but either way, i like it. >> thank you. >> jimmy: one more thing, on the subject of profstitution, you se these guys standing behind the president. it's hard to imagine them doing anything really except for standing there. it's a scenario, though, that has inspired tonight's edition of our audience participation game. tonight's pedestrian question is, have you ever paid for sex? we went on hollywood boulevard
12:19 am
today to ask people if you've ever exchanged money for sex. we'll see someone introduce themselves, then stop the video and try to guess the answer. >> my name's mark. i'm from l.a. >> well have you ever paid for sex, and if so, how much? [cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: everyone says yes. >> no, i've never paid for sex. >> have you ever been paid? >> twice. [cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: all right, next. >> terrell, from new jersey. >> have you ever paid for sex, and if so, how much? >> jimmy: oh, everyone just -- everybody's yelling yes and no. okay, let's find out. >> yeah, like a dollar.

12:34 am
